  • Wall Street Breakfast: Santander CFO Alvarez Named New CEO [View article]
    Careful with pet food - a lot of it is made in China where anything goes. They killed quite a few pets with Melamine contamination not long ago. lMO variety is the best approach (including table scraps and other food we eat like eggs for dogs, tuna for cats) when it comes to feeding pets. I have used this approach and they have had long lives with minimal visits to the vet. JMO based on my experience.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Santander CFO Alvarez Named New CEO [View article]
    In Sam's days, they gave you the price, the quality, full shelves and well maintained stores. That is why they grew to be #1. With many of the things that made Walmart #1, its been down hill since his passing and I suspect that he is rolling in his grave shaking his head as the chickens come home to roost. The customer has not been #1 at Walmart for a long time.

    There are all kinds of fads out their with limited to no health benefits to most people - everything from gluten free to all those diets and suplements that are being pumped. A lot of this stuff is actually more harmful for most people than it is good. IMO - Nothing wrong with a good hamburger and fries once in a while.

  • Will OPEC agree to cut output? Will it matter? [View news story]
    I suspect that the Saudi's are trying to avoid the messy outcome of not cutting production after Novembers meeting. That is why they telegraphed their displeasure with the current situation well in advance. The others are already feeling a fair bit of pain.As for who they want to influence, I would have to say it is Russia more so than shale producers. The only thing that will influence shale producers is price of oil and cost of producing it. At $80, it will slow down the growth of shale production significantly as certain plays are non economic and reduced cash flow from those that are economic means slower growth. I think the Saudi's have spent conciderable time doing their home work.

  • Will OPEC agree to cut output? Will it matter? [View news story]
    IMO - OPEC would be nuts not to cut production as if they do not. oil prices definitely will crash and even the Saudi's will have big problems at $50 oil. The Saudi's fired the warning shots as a means of getting the rest of OPEC and some other producers (including Russia regardless of what they say publicly) in line and in a cooperating mood. Even if by some chance they do not come to agreement at this meeting, you can almost count on them having another go at it in early January once the problem producers have felt some more pain and get the taste of what an uncooperative future will offer them.

  • Report: EPA plans to drop 2014 renewable fuel quotas [View news story]
    Don't get me wrong - I am all for cleaning up the environment, just not for trying to do it with junk science and subsidies that people have to pay through the nose for with dubious benefits!!

  • Report: EPA plans to drop 2014 renewable fuel quotas [View news story]
    IMO - Lots of unsubsidized natural gas to compete with coal. Besides if you want to reduce the use of coal, it can be done in many other ways than relying on subsidized alternatives like ethanol and green energy.

  • Keystone XL Not Needed For The Canadian Oil Sands [View article]
    Anybody with half a brain does not believe what "His Liar and Chief" says and the industry and TRP are more than capable of figuring out the need for Keystone and everything I hear says they want it. JMO

  • Shorts take profits after oil inventories unexpectedly rise [View news story]
    Every one is expecting OPEC and some of its allies to cut production. Watch out below if it does not happen!!!!! Saudi's are looking for cooperation from others as they are one of the few that can survive lower prices without major pain. JMO

    This project makes a lot of sense to everyone but Lame Duck Obama and his Leftie supporters.

    The market should be determining that not a bunch of politicians with hidden agenda's. A short term blip in the price of oil also does not set a trend so making a statement like that shows minimal if any incite. Also people need to remember that Canada has always been America's friend and closest ally.
